First of all let me say that WordPress is SECURE.
Secondly, let me say that anything is secure until someone (usually the bad guys) finds a way to break into it.
The good news is that when this happens, the smart guys fix it so the bad guys can’t get in. Phew!
If you own a WordPress Website from time to time you’ll need to update to keep your site safe and secure.
There are 3 different things that might need to be updated in WordPress: The Core itself, Themes, and Plugins.
Luckily, when new updates become available you are alerted to them in the dashboard.
Since Version 3.7 of WordPress they have made the update process automatic. So essentially there’s nothing for you to do.
But automatic doesn’t apply to the other 2: Themes and Plugins. Both of these you’ll still need to update manually.
Don’t worry. It’s easy. When you see the updates for your Themes and Plugins it takes just a single click (for each) to update them. Here’s a video showing just how easy this is.
How easy was that? Don’t forget to backup your site before updating.
